Monza: not only Ferrari and F1

2013-09-21 17.00.36 Monza is a nice city nearby Milano, worldwide famous for hosting the Formula 1 race (in one of the largest city park in Europe).

A visit to this city is worth and will offer the chance to admire also other interesting beauties, such as the charming city centre, a net of pedestrian narrow streets with café and shops, the main church (duomo), the former city hall, the old towers and walls, the lovely ‘royal villa’ (built during the austrian empire and one of the symbol of this city), the huge city park.

More info can be found here.

I would suggest a visit during a saturday afternoon, many people gather in the centre, for shopping, meeting friends, drinking a coffee…

Day trip at Crespi d’Adda (UNESCO)

2013-09-07 16.51.08 Second day trip that I’d like to suggest if you are visiting Milano is at Crespi d’Adda (more info can be found on this wikipedia page).

This is a ‘company town’ in a kind of ‘Ford model’, with houses for workers and employees built around the area where the industry had been established. The owner of the industry not only built houses, he concerned about recreational and social activities too.

The site is on Unesco’s list.

Unfortunately my pictures won’t be able to show how interesting is this place, maybe an upper view would be ideal, however I can ensure that a walk in this area is more than pleasant. It seems to walk breath in a recent past.
